Attorneys general in 13 states have joined numerous class members in appealing an $80.6 million legal fee award in Apple’s $310 million iPhone throttling settlement.

In an Oct. 8 amicus brief before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, the attorneys general insisted that U.S. District Judge Edward Davila’s order granting the fees, which were less than the $87.7 million requested by class counsel, still provided a windfall to the plaintiffs’ lawyers that came at the expense of the class.
